Visit Keswick Island
The sheltered bays of Keswick Island are home to colourful coral gardens and a myriad of tropical fish that rates amongst the best in the Great Barrier Reef.
Keswick Island is situated 32 kilometres off the tropical city of Mackay and is the southern most island in the Whitsundays. The temperatures vary from 17 celsius to 24 celsius in winter (water temperature is a steady 20 celsius) and 24 celsius to 30 celsius in summer (water temperature is a steady 26 celsius). Keswick Island is designated national park with a total area of 530 hectares or 1300 acres, with a majority of this dedicated as natural habitat.
It offers divers a unique diving experience, as there are very few places in the world where you can experience world class diving, and one of the few places in Australia where you have the potential to dive three wreck sites all from within half an hour of the island.
There are several walking treks that lead to secluded beaches with beautiful views along the way. Keswick Island in still being developed, currently the only visitor accommodation is the Keswick Island Guesthouse and Bed and Breakfast
